UK Charts: A Quiet Week Sees Mario Strikers: Battle League Slip Into Third

Image: Nintendo

It’s been a quiet week for the UK charts, with little change to the all-format top ten list. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football started strong last week at the top of the pile, but has now slipped into third, with both Horizon Forbidden West and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga taking first and second place respectively. The latter also saw exceptionally strong performance for the Switch, making up 42% of total console sales for the week.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land once again slips out of the top ten, but remains at a comfortably strong position at number eleven. Time will tell whether the game gathers steam again, but with the recent release of three Kirby SP titles on the Nintendo Switch Online service, this may give it a slight boost.

Elsewhere, Final Vendetta enters the top forty, though evidently hasn’t set the world on fire, coming in at number thirty six. In our review of the game, we thought it was a solid effort by Bitmap Bureau, though not without its faults.
